Women have always been heroes. But it is no longer enough just to say so. As we shake off the last traces of a major patriarchal hangover, women need a new name of their own. As sheroes, all women can fully embrace their fiery fempower and celebrate their no-holds-barred individuality. From the serhoic foremothers who blazed trails and broke barriers, to today's women warriors from sports, science, cyberspace, city hall, the lecture hall, and the silver screen, Sheroes paints 200 portraits of powerful and inspiring role models for women poised for the future. Drawn from the fictional and real worlds, the sheroic profiles include: Dian Fossey, Martina Navratilova, Sojourner Truth, Indira Ghandi, Aretha Franklin, Margaret Mead, Coretta Scott king, Georgia O'Keeffe, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Agent Scully, Joan Baez, Eleanor Roosevelt, Coco Chanel, Anita Hill, Thelma and Louise, Ripley, Roseanne, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Wangari Maathai, and others.
